    • Dear Octavio, This poem showed a side of you, you usually would not see. I think this is a very deep poem. I like the line, “The feeling of someone important in your life passing away is like a bullet to the brain” I like this line because, I can really relate to it.

    • Dear Flavio,

      Sorry to hear about your Grandpa passing away. You did a really good job of turning that traumatic event into a beautifully written piece. It must have been hard speaking about this topic but I appreciate you for doing so.

      Sincerely,
      Vesna Sot

      Sometimes I feel the same way as you. I don’t feel like getting up to do hw or to go to school. Your poem is cool. I leaned a lot about you.

    • This is a very interesting poem. You used some diction that is very strong to express exactly what you feel and I think a lot of people appreciate that. I like how you started with a question and used your poem as the answer. Keep up the great work!

    • Hella Lazy tavio but same. This poem is good because It is very honest about yourself and how you are lazy.

    • This poem is a very descriptive why this person is lazy as hell, reason why I say it is descriptive is because octavio saying that he doesn’t eat so that why he is lazy.

    • octavio,
      You do have a pretty cool name. I think its interesting that you are more attached to your mothers maiden name since most people go by their fathers name, however it makes sense to identify with the side of the family that you are closer with. its interesting to look up the meanings behind your name even if that wasn’t the reason for your name. my name means honey bee but i don’t think thats why i was named melissa. with such a interesting name i bet your family history is a good story and i encourage you too learn more about the origins of your last name. thanks for a fun post to read.

    • Octavio,
      I liked your insight about your name. I thought it was interesting how each of your names have an origin and you feel connected to them. Like Padilla, your moms maiden name, since you grew up with her siblings and feel connected to them and thus really like the name. Carrazco, your fathers name, is interesting because like you said its not a name you hear often. And Octavio since it is again a unique name. I encourage you to learn more about the origin of Carrazco and Padilla since there is probably some heritage associated with it. Also, I encourage you to inquire to your parents more about why they named you Octavio since there is probably a story behind it.
      Hope to hear more!
